I’ll admit, I kinda haven’t been running as often as I should have/liked for the passed few months. I know I had to take time off for my shin splints but for some reason I let my running slide 😦 Looking back, here’s a few reasons..
A- Needed to rest due to shin splints
B- Husband has been away on his work term during the week and without a babysitter, I couldn’t get out for runs
C- The Fort MacMurray fires played a massive number on my anxiety. Worrying about my friends was intense and exhausting. Not to mention how exhausting it was to be the sole parent all week
So what did I end up doing? Feeling bad for myself and eating way too much (especially chips) and I’ve gained weight.
I went for a few runs while visiting my in-laws and boy did I notice the difference in my stamina. It has gone downhill!!
Well, time for me to get myself back together and get back atter! Even though Simon had me up at 5:30am again this morning for the milllionth time this week, I will go for a run when Dave puts him to bed this evening (we take turns putting him to bed).
I’ve been planking every day again as well..
Wish me luck!
